Principles of publicity of university education in remote teaching
- The publicity of education does not mean that links to remote teaching are shared publicly on a website.
- Publicity should be understood as the opportunity to attend teaching.
- The publicity of teaching is supported and enforced by the public availability of the university’s curricula.
- The option to attend remote teaching must be arranged upon request.
- While publicity is the guiding principle, it can and sometimes must be restricted.
- The publicity of teaching can be restricted for a justified reason. These reasons include but are not limited to the following:
- The space used in teaching does not permit participation. In remote teaching, this may mean that the licence of the service being used is not sufficient to accommodate guests, for example.
- The nature of the content of teaching prevents participation by outsiders. Such situations include, for example
- review of an individual study attainment
- evaluation of a student’s work
- feedback on learning
- other non-public teaching events
- the content of teaching is confidential or sensitive (such as hospital training, presentation containing business secrets used in teaching)
- The visibility and processing of students’ personal data must also be assessed separately if outsiders participate in remote teaching. Efforts must be made to minimise the amount of personal data being shared.
Opportunities to participate in remote teaching can also be organised separately. These may include, for example, various open days organised by the university that can be attended remotely.
